Jack Vidgen dons sheer holy costume for release of single Pray

Jack Vidgen has taken a leaf out of Justin Bieber’s book and gone holy for his new single.

The 24-year-old Aussie singer, best known for winning the fifth series of Australia’s Got Talent when he was just a teen, has teased fans with the artwork from the cover of his new single.

Jack Vidgen will front Australian furniture brand 'Koala' during the 2021 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras march - championing diversity and inclusion on February 09, 2021 in Sydney, Australia. 'Koala' will become the official sponsor of the 2021 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade for the first time this year with the theme Comfortable in your own skin.

Taking to Instagram, Jack, who also appeared on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! earlier this year, uploaded a preview of the song and video which is due to be released on February 26th.

A clip shows Jack dressed in a black PVC jacket with a see through black netted top underneath.


Around his neck, he appears to be wearing a white clerical collar, with a black cross on the front.

One clip shows Jack licking the side of a mirror as he sings: “So I’m going to pray”.

“My lips may be fake but they always speak the truth” he captioned another photo, referencing Real Housewives of Sydney star Matty Samaei.

The release of Jack’s new song comes just over a year after Jack sang I Am King I Am Queen in the Eurovision Song Contest.

It’s also right in the middle of Sydney’s Mardi Gras festival, which will see Jack perform for the first time on March 6 at Sydney Cricket Ground atop a show-stopping float for Koala, the official sponsor of the parade.

This year's theme is "comfortable in your own skin", something Jack previously told Yahoo Lifestyle he had previously struggled with.

"It’s definitely been a journey for me," Jack told Yahoo Lifestyle. I think people can see that now as well, with recently doing I’m A Celeb. It’s been really nice [with it] being 10 years since I kind of first came onto people’s TVs, it’s been a nice full-circle moment to have people getting to know me and getting to know the me that is a lot more comfortable in my own skin now.

"It’s definitely a journey and I think it’s one that we’re all on our whole lives, being comfortable in our own skin.”

He also shared what it was like the first time he actually attended the parade, saying: “Going to Mardi Gras [for the first time], I was probably 20 and getting all dressed up and putting lots of glitter on and getting to watch the parade, it was definitely a very liberating experience.”
